I stayed at Banks Mansion very recently and all I can say is that it is an exceptional hotel. Why? Because I have been fortunate enough to stay at some of the very best five-star/luxury hotels all over Europe and the USA, but the service at this hotel outdid all of them! Every member of staff, without exception, was charming,...

The all-inclusive concept for this boutique hotel is a great idea. No queuing at a bar, just help yourself! Most guests, like us I would imagine would say "really? help ourselves?" but yes it is help yourself to a well stocked bar in the reception/lounge area - beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks and coffee. The nice thing about it is,...

Fantastic service & location, topped off by absolutely splendid room and amenities. From first to last, we were looked after marvellously by the helpful staff - the free drinks and cheese and snacks were the icing on the cake.

Stayed here over Valentines weekend, February 2014. A really nice hotel, ideally located on the Herengracht Canal which is very central and great for getting to everything. Good suggestion of dinner from the concierge whose name escapes me. Rooms and service were very satisfactory. Would stay here again, no doubt.
